Co-op 28's huge fundraiser for The Foundation for Fighting Blindness happens this Sunday. Marci worked her magic and so many people have donated for the cause. Please check out the Facebook page for more info and what will be up for auction. In addition, there will be a one-day exhibit in our back gallery space:
Co op 28 Gallery presents “Feel-Sighted II,” a group exhibit featuring touchable artwork. Presenting an unconventional way to “see” art, this show displays works that were meant to be touched as the foremost, but not exclusive, way to appreciate the art. Some works have been created by artists with partial vision. Inspired by how influential the role of touch can be in the creation of these works, artists invite their guests to don blindfolds and enjoy the works with their fingers—instead of their eyes.
Employing a diverse vocabulary of textures, forms, and even temperatures, these works invite new considerations and critiques of the traditional visual-only reception of art. Certain showcased artists, who rely heavily on their senses of touch to create their works, invite guests to experience art as the artist does during its formation. The idea was to create work that felt as great as it looked and synthetically inspire the viewer to enjoy it wholly, not just through sight alone.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Foundation for Fighting Blindness. Leading research to develop cures and provide treatment and prevention for vision loss, The Foundation for Fighting Blindness continues to help millions of people across the country. We are pleased to coordinate this event and provide support for this necessary cause. www.blindness.org
Artists include: Airom Bleicher, Michael Chearney, Nancy Larrew, Alisa Gabrielle, Jaime Becker, Dave Lovejoy and Argishti Musakhanyan. Curated by Hannah Kim.
See you there!
